Egremont wrestler Johnny Moss has been getting to grips with a creative role as a producer for one of WWE’s major events.

Moss, who ran the School of Hard Knocks and Hammerlocks in Egremont before becoming a WWE coach in 2017, was one of the producers for last month’s NXT TakeOver: New York show in front of 15,000 fans at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The show was part of the build-up to WrestleMania 35 – WWE's flagship event – which entertained more than 80,000 people at MetLife Stadium.

He worked with wrestling legends Triple H, Shawn Michaels and William Regal behind-the-scenes on the show, which saw Johnny Gargano defeat Adam Cole in a two-out-of-three falls match to become the new NXT Champion, Shayna Baszler beat Io Shirai, Bianca Belair and Kairi Sane in a match for the NXT Women's Championship and WALTER get the better of Pete Dunne to be WWE UK Champion

Velveteen Dream also came out on top against Matt Riddle in a match for the NXT North American Championship and The War Raiders are NXT Tag Team Champions after defeating Aleister Black and Ricochet.

“To be involved with the creative process and production of an event of this magnitude was surreal, then to see your ideas come to life before you was just as rewarding as performing in the ring,” he said.

Moss then flew to London to hold a week-long training camp with the wrestlers on WWE’s NXT UK brand on a coaching team of British wrestling royalty with Dave Taylor, Robbie Brookside and James Mason.

He said: “These weeks are extremely rewarding as a coach.

“Everybody in that building gives 110 per cent every time and has dedicated their life to professional wrestling, which is what it takes to make it at this level.”
